Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a peripheral genealogist, my belief that we are all related is steadfast. As a teenager I thought I had no relatives in USA. I felt I was a 1st gen. American, of Canadian parents. Was I ever wrong. My wife is 14th gen. Mayflower Descendant. That makes our son a citizen of the WORLD. Enough said, I will try to get photos from RI and nearby New England cemeteries. Gravestone carvings are invaluable, (even when you figure in errors in spelling, dates etc) and often provide more questions than answers. Fasten your seat belt and get ready for the RIDE OF YOUR LIFE!

RE: Thanks for the Eliza Colwell photo
Oh, yes, I am a Mayflower descendant, 3 times over, from what I've read. Cousins galore back there, I am sure.

Right now, I am more excited about the near ancestors than the far back ones. I am trying to work my way back in time.

There is something really special about finding my dad's family names--Barney and Colwell-- in a place the other side of the country -- especially considering that my RI Gramps moved to TX as a teenager.

I always thought of myself as a Texan, but I know now that I have a whole bunch of New Englander in me. I like that.

Thanks for the Eliza Colwell photo
That was a very fast response to my photo request. Thanks so much for providing the photo. I live out in CA and am just now learning about the family I have back in RI. I hope to visit RI soon, but in the meantime, your efforts help me learn more about my family, and I really appreciate all that you do!

Rice family in Pocasett Cemetery
Walter Channing Rice, Grace Lilla (Holbrook) Rice, and daughter Isabel Holbrook (Rice) Mathewson, 2nd wife of David Arnold Mathewson III. I have sent you a message as requested. I believe I had requested photos, but I make several types of requests while I'm working on here and cannot remember exactly what was in the request other than that. (I neglected to check the "send me a copy" box) :-(
